Our attorneys were actively involved in the creation of the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP) Law and have provided advice during legislative amendments. Knauf Shaw has been at the forefront of representing BCP applicants before the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and when necessary in court. Knauf Shaw serves as counsel for developers, not-for-profits, low income housing developers, and municipalities on numerous brownfield projects moving through the BCP, including commercial, residential, mixed-use and public park projects throughout New York State. We have successfully navigated many projects through the BCP process, ultimately helping clients achieve a Certificate of Completion, the associated liability release, and tax credits. Knauf Shaw handled the first BCP case to be heard by the Court of Appeals, New York's highest court, Lighthouse Pointe Property Associates LLC v. New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, 14 N.Y.3d 161, 897 N.Y.S.2d 693 (2010), where the NYSDEC decision to reject the site from the program was overturned, and Knauf Shaw’s client gained rightful admission into the BCP.
